GINAL,

Well there are a few wires that go to the top of the fuel tank. Some are for are the gas gauge which are called the "sending unit" and then two to the fuel pump itself and then one to the computer I believe.

What seems to be your problem?

But to answer your question this group of wires are called the fuel tank wiring harness.

Are you talking about the wire in the photo that is on the unit or the replacement harness that is off to the side in the photo?
The one off to the side is a repair harness that you install to the vehicle harness. You have to cut the old connector off, and splice this connector back on. The harness on the unit itself would be the in tank harness for the pump and sending unit.You can see it runs from the pump to the underside of the units mounting flange ( Flange= the round area that the unit mounts to the tank at)

For some reason the vehicle repair harness is in the photo twice.

Fuel Pump Wiring

Yes that looks like the one off to the side. Ive called several places and they keep talking about the one inside the tank with the sending unit. The piece Im looking for has a click on each end has the hotwire one end plugs into the top of the fuel pump?? or sending unit (dont know what its called sorry) but it fits on top of the tank and then other end connects to the harness. Thank you for posting for me to see.

Thanks I think thats it I am hoping I might have found 1 @ Napa If not Chevrolet dealer said I need to buy the sending unit to get that piece and its about $430.00. Do you think I could find one of those at the junkyard or have to buy new if this isnt the piece at Napa?
Thanks for your help
Gina

GinaL,

Buying one from a wrecking yard is like throwing dice. You could get a good one but then again you may get one that is on it's last legs. I would spend the big bucks and know the unit will work the first time and not have to worry about pulling the tank to replace the unit again. Also shop around because there are fuel pump/sending units that are generic and cost much less BUT you will have to follow the directions to the letter so it will work in your application.

good Luck
Scholman
